Watched the first episode of Capture. Looks moderately promising!

Finally notice the BBC trailer for "World on Fire" a dramatisation of the early days of WW2. Interesting for covering the Poland / UK connection via personal story of a translator in Poland, then looks like it goes up to about the Battle of Britain via Dunkirk, told in the main from 'personal', small scale events rather than a big political story, links into the Manchester area too, so some might like to compare with their own recollections of 1939 into 1940.

Watched Matt Wright and Sharon Osborne on Who Do you Think You Are? last night. Both of them excellent and interesting.

I watched the Mark Wright one. Never heard of him before, and having got his name wrong, I guess you haven't either. :smile: Very interesting. Traced his family back to Sephardi Jews in Spain - not far from Marbella to where some of his family have now moved. How ironic. :smile:

Did you see the cathedral in that small town? Name escapes me. Amazing architecture.

Here's how the Jewish Chronicle saw it - worth reading. Mark Wright

I've got a CD of Sephardi Jewish music music somewhere - I'll dig it out.

Thank you Kev - rescued again..
The cathedral was in a town called Jaén. No- me neither. :smile: Worth a look.

I've just surfed into The Last Night of the Proms.

I'd say 'it was over' all conditions have now been fulfilled. :smile:

I noted that Brexit had invaded the Albert Hall, did you clock the number of EU flags?
